Rafael Nadal

It was hard enough for Nadal to win his first victory in this tournament. Having missed a month, the Spaniard decided to start preparing for the US Open with a competition in Washington. But already in the first fight, some difficulties awaited him. To defeat Jack Sok, he had to play three games. As a result, Rafa won 6-2, 4-6, 7-6.

It should be noted that so far Nadal has not lived up to expectations. At Australian Open, he covered his racket in the quarterfinals, losing to Stefanos Tsitsipas. At Roland Garros he also failed to win. In the final the Spaniard was defeated by Novak Djokovic.

Lloyd Harris

All of Harris's successes this season are associated with hard tournaments. The most successful for him was the competition in Dubai, where he reached the final. In the decisive match the South African lost to Aslan Karatsev. Thanks to this achievement, Lloyd climbed to 50th place in the world rankings.

In Washington Harris has had only one fight so far. In the previous round, he did not finish his match against Tennis Sandgren. Losing 4-6, 0-1 during the meeting, the American refused to continue the fight.

Prediction

As the first fight showed, Nadal has problems. The Spaniard has missed too much and is not yet ready to show his best game. It is unlikely that something will change in the second match of Rafa. Most likely, he will not be able to easily beat Harris.

Considering all of the above, we suggest playing a positive head start on the South African.

Our prediction is Lloyd Harris's handicap (+4.5) of the game for the coefficient 1.81 in BC 1xBet.

Harris has a strong enough serve, so he may well drag out the meeting. If Sock did it, Lloyd should do it too. Still, the South African is now showing a more attractive game.

Second prediction is for a total over 20.5 games in 1.67.

Place a bet on the line of 1xBet with odds of 1.81.
